    Huh, I had it in my head that Turing was black for some reason. Still, slick.

    Och aye, I don't know anyone else who has remotely as good value for money.
    If you teach a man to fish, he'll still vote for the guy that gives him a fish.

    I flirted with the idea for a while as his Awakening took shape, but my original idea of him pre-Awakening was as a pretty whitebread Midwestern kid and I didn't want to completely leave that behind. His Awakening pulled him all kinds of out of his comfort zone, but you can't help where you die

    Definitely. That actually reminds me, now that I've posted the final version I can show Rob's recolors that he sent me when I was trying to settle on a shirt color so you can get an idea of Turing's wardrobe:

    Jack recommends the Yellow, the green next to it, the pink, the dark red and the reverse black and white.

    I do rather like the red. Maybe Turing will wear it to the next exorcism - for that little extra bit of punch.

    Or maybe some Guardian event. Not that they seem too social... Jack's date not withstanding.

    Over cider while discussing him with DD. Turing struck me as thicker in the middle, more power lifter than body builder, and slightly gone due to enjoying the excesses of a good life. This is after the inspiration for my Acanthud by the way. We then bought Raz an applejuice so he could share the pony oriented beverage without indulging, as he is a teetotaler.

    I'm also jealous DD found that brand of cider, now that I think about it. What was it again? Woodchuck?

    No, see, I'm not going to commission anything. Hence my reluctance.

    Jack as a pony would be easier. I'm getting quite comfortable with pony drawin's. People are harder, and if I did do the thing I don't want to but have in mind, it would require background too.

    No promises.

    Oh, right.

    Yeah, I'm not terribly good at people. Or at least not men. I can manage to draw women, sometimes, but my hand drawing in general is rather basic. Which is why I wouldn't bother trying to draw Amun myself.

    Hmm, well Turing is still new to the indulgent life, as it's really only been a year-ish since he's Awakened and his vice wasn't Gluttony before. Also, good times!

    I'm also jealous DD found that brand of cider, now that I think about it. What was it again? Woodchuck?
    Nope, Angry Orchard. So tasty.

    Tell me Amun's idea is not totally crazy, please

    I mean, if you're a totally bat-sh** crazy paranoid nut, who is scared sh**-less of what you know and the possibility that it might get into the wrong hands, and you want to make absolutely, 100% sure that it doesn't ... is it so far fetched to think you might build an overly complicated mechanism to kill you instantly upon some condition, like the alarm of the building going off because of an intruder? If you're crazy enough? And if you're concerned about casualties you don't make it a bomb, but maybe a gun ... but one gun can fail, so you make it two ... but ... maybe you're totally insane and think, just possibly two guns could fail, or wouldn't kill you outright, so you make it 38 just to be safe.

    I mean, if you're completely out of your mind? I know, it's crazy, but is it crazy enough to work?

    Firebee has a brain the size of a planet and has discounted that scenario as low probability. Doesn't necessarily means she's right.

    It's not that Amun's idea is crazy. It's that it isn't crazy enough.
    One gun to the head will pretty much guaranteed do the job, outside of really freaky chances. If he has reason to believe that freaky chances will almost certainly occur, adding more guns isn't really likely to help much as that just gives the Fate Mage more possibility to work with. (One gun misfires, nudges all of the others out of the way, etc).

    It's not impossible that the guy believed that more guns was the only way, though. I'd expect some kind of "Need More Dakka!" obsession to be involved for that to be the case though, which would probably have left more clues. (Gun-based traps everywhere, lots and lots of them).

    I suppose if he'd already tried and failed to kill himself via single gunshot, (mind magic stopping him being able to, or some kind of healing-factor thing, so he felt the need to completely obliterate himself very definately) and so on.

    Yeah I'm sorry, but I think that suicide is just not the major motivation for whatever went on there. I'm sure the guy did will his own death, but it seems clear to me that it was a means to some other end.

    Some days, the dice like me.

    Actually, the reason I went through with it was that I didn't know if just using it at a range would qualify for a roll - in retrospect I suppose that might also require an instructor...

    Additionally, I was wondering if the AI features meant Turing could sneak in Computers as a part of the roll, since he does have a specialty in AI.

    If not, I'll just take my extreme good luck as a justification for purchasing a Firearms dot or two down the road >.>

    An untrained dex 1 goon firing a hyperadvanced military prototype assault rifle/grenade launcher which may or may not carry a Gypsy curse has a roll associated with it, yes.

    "Turing."
    "Yes, Amun?"
    "I am lucky and all, but please, take your finger off the trigger and don't point the gun at me like you're gesturing with your cane when you don't actually want to kill me."
    "Huh, that's good. Where did you learn that?"
    "Gun safety pamphlet at the bus stop several years ago."
    "Novel."

    Turing gains +1 gunskill!

    Bonus tip: aiming confers a +1 dice bonus. Taking three seconds to make sure the gun is pointed were you want it to and the trigger is nowhere near pressed at the wrong time goes a long way.

    Additional tip: snipers actually use wind, sight scopes as distance cards to use math to calculate ballistic arcs on the fly while aiming. Using computers to figure out the AI is not that out of the park. Although it doesn't seem like the AI actually fires the gun, so it's theoretically already aiming for you?

    Jack as a pony would be easier. I'm getting quite comfortable with pony drawin's. People are harder, and if I did do the thing I don't want to but have in mind, it would require background too.

    No promises.
    Ugh. This is taking ages. And then it's going to suck anyway.

    You have guaranteed that the first thing that will happen when you take it out is for Tessen to laugh at you for holding it wrong.

    Next time we get XP, I'm buying at least 1 dot in crafts. I want Tessen to be a bit more of a tinker to go with the ability to get electricity to anything and I'm sad that she currently has no talent to physically inspect this thing, and only the talent to use it.
